Our team of nurses, and physician assistants are medical professionals with extensive laser training. They undergo a rigorous qualification process before being cleared to provide tattoo removal treatments to our patients. Using medical personnel is both the only legal and ethical way to provide laser tattoo removal treatments, which can sometimes cause blistering and minor pinpoint bleeding. Our professionals are experts at both laser treatments and minor wound care.
We use the proven MedLite C-6, Q-switched Laser, long considered the gold standard for laser tattoo removal. Both our MedLite C-6 Laser and the DeScribe Patches enable us to do it all faster, safer and more affordably than other providers. Whether you need tattoo removal, tattoo color lightening, tattoo shading, and tattoo cover ups, we are ready to serve you!
The DeScribe Patch
DermacareHR is proud to introduce the DeScribe Patch, revolutionizing Laser Tattoo Removal! The patch enables us to treat your tattoo multiple times during each treatment session, speeding up the removal process to as short as 6 months instead of the usual 12-18 months.
We can now treat your tattoo as rapidly as a pico-second laser for a much lower cost!
How does Laser Tattoo Removal work?
Dermacare’s Medlite C6 laser removes ink by generating a variety of light wavelengths that target different ink colors. The light passes into the skin and is absorbed by the ink, causing it to break into tiny particles, which can then be removed by the body’s natural filtering systems.
What types of tattoos can be removed with laser tattoo removal?
Professional, amateur (homemade), traumatic and surgical tattoos. We can also do tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups.
How long does the treatment take?
Professional tattoos: 6-12 treatments ** With the DeScribe patch now as few as 4 treatments!! **
Amateur tattoos: 4-5 treatments ** With the DeScribe patch now as few as 2 treatments!! **
Tattoo shading, lightening & cover-ups: varies, call for free consult
Spacing: 6-8 weeks apart ** With the DeScribe patch now as soon as 4 weeks!! **
The number of treatments depends on the amount and type of ink used, and the depth of the ink in the skin.
Is laser tattoo removal painful?
Patients report a sensation similar to the snap of a small rubber band. Most patients don’t require local anesthesia, however we provide anesthetic numbing creams if needed.
What are typical results?
Following a series of treatments, the tattoos appearance may fade more than 95 percent, often erasing it completely. Results vary depending on the type of ink used and the depth of its application.
How do different colors in tattoos react to treatment?
Dark blue, black and red inks react most favorably to laser tattoo removal as do oranges and purples. Green, light blue and yellow inks are the most difficult to remove, additional treatments may be needed to produce significant fading.
Are there any side effects?
The system provides maximum tattoo removal while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. Occasionally, pinpoint bleeding may be associated with the treatment.
